Equal Love, Different Love

Apples and oranges. One of my sons tells me about healthy foods and reminds me that we need to eat them at each meal. He asked me this morning if pancakes were healthy foods. Gotta love that he’s keeping me on track as a mommy. My other son is not even present for this conversation as he’s still getting ready, singing a song as he gets dressed ever so slowly. Oh my goodness, so impossibly slow for this efficiently-minded mama. I can hear him telling himself a story as I call out to him, letting him know his nutritionally-substandard pancakes...

How to Upsize One-Size Diapers

One-size diapers usually offer several rows of snaps on the front of their diaper so that you can best customize fit for your child. A number of variables exist for when to size up and down. I’ve always just gone with my baby’s gut. As in, I take a look at my babe to assess when I change rise settings. A few things to consider when you assess your babe’s individual needs: Each brand varies and fits each babe differently.Most brands have three settings though a few have a third row of snaps allowing for a fourth, smaller size.

Taking Care of Your Other Kids when You're Fighting Morning Sickness

I had zero sickness when I was pregnant with my daughter. I wasn't even nauseous. So when I was about 7 weeks pregnant with my son, and the fatigue train knocked me on my rear, I was not prepared.I couldn't even move from my couch. The nausea was truly awful, and all day. My sweet little 2-year-old was so confused by all this because up until then we had enjoyed a lovely little routine of bopping all over town visiting friends and libraries and doing all the tender and memorable things first time moms do with their little darlings.Now? No...

Kids Birthday Gifts that Won't Add Clutter

Birthday season is upon us in my home. My three children’s birthdays are all within a two-week period so, it’s KIND of like second Christmas over here. We have a pre birthday-toy purge followed by a post-birthday-toy purge. Then, there are the unfortunate toys that end up in “Toy Purgatory” to either be given away or played with at a later date. Timeframe: Purely arbitrary.My husband and I tend to be minimalistic by nature. We intentionally purchased a smaller home (about 1100 square feet) and our boys share a room with four boxes of toys. If the toys don’t fit in...

The Baby Gear I don’t Even Know What to Do With

My oldest is 8 years old now, and my youngest is 4, so I was super curious when I got an invite to a college friend’s baby shower to see what things she registered for, just to see how much things had changed. And boy, have they changed.Baby Butt SpatulasI honestly had no idea what this was for. I honestly thought maybe this item was for the first-year smash cake shoot, and maybe you just layer the baby with fondant now and skip the cake altogether? IDK. When I was a FTM, I used my hands to spread diaper rash cream...
